Swedish siren Ninsun Poli to release new EP

Read what we think, and take a listen to the track Hey Lover while you're at it...

This year has seen an influx of super-cool, super-hot new female singers hit the scene. There’s Banks hot from the US, Mø from Denmark and now Swedish beauty Ninsun Poli seems a sure bet to reign supreme.

Ninsun Poli established herself as one to watch in Sweden in 2004 with her first EP, For Real. This earned her the prestigious accolade of next hope for soul on Scandinavian radio. Her latest EP, Breaking Rules, is her first to be released in the UK and looks set to tear clubs apart.

The singer’s latest single Break The Rules is a rumbling club banger, featuring raspy, haunting vocals and an infectious beat. It’s almost impossible to tell that the song was recorded from the comfort of Ninsun’s own living room, but this is perhaps the thing that gives it an edge over possible competition. Well, this and her Karen O meets Stevie Nicks vocals and neat, tight production from Johan T Karlsson (aka Familjen).

Breaking Rules features lead single Break The Rules, as well as Hey Lover, Faces and Do It, the latter a track so catchy it should come with a health warning. The EP is released on 28 April in the UK, just in time to introduce it as your non-stop summer playlist.

Have a listen of the track Hey Lover below.
